There is a localized episcleritis, without nodularity. The patient has no known systemic disease (including no inflammatory bowel disease nor rheumatoid arthritis). Note the violacious color of the inflammed section. The remainder of the sclera and episclera in this eye and the contralateral eye remain white and quiet.
